lyrics

I ripped off my first head when I was nine. My fingers ran red with cherry kool-aid dye.
But I always ate my veggies,
I never failed a test,
I never tried to rip a real man's heart from his chest.

Built a kingdom from an easy chair,
they still say I was a peaceful ruler there.
Saved the world with a loaded gun and all I've found is they still say I was a good man to have around.

Collected my first head when I was 14--but I asked permission--in the basement in front of the TV.
I always walked the girls to the door,
I never stole a kiss,
and I left their pretty girl hearts down in their chests.

Built a kingdom from an easy chair,
they still say I was a peaceful ruler there.
Saved the world with a loaded gun and all I've found is they still say I was a good man to have around.

I never had a plan,
I never build up walls,
I never went for high scores in the high school halls.

Built a kingdom from an easy chair,
they still say I was a peaceful ruler there.
Saved the world with a loaded gun and all I've found is they still say I was a good man; trusted.
A young man; well-adjusted.
A smart man, so much more than
a good man to have around.
